? inquiring politicians want to know and not just republican ones. democrat john kerry wants to get to the bottom of what u.s. authorities knew about escalating terror threats in libya. supposedly there were 20 cables warning the state department how to proceed at the embassy including pole from the late ambassador chris stevens himself why governor huckabee says this is escalating fast. when democrats want to know the chain of evens here, this goes beyond a political thing. >>governor huckabee: it does and it should. this is not about the politics of this election, this is about the integrity of the white house and whether or not we are going to stand by and allow our government to openly lie to us about why did chris stevens die? why did three other americans die with him? what did we know? when did we know it? why do we continue to blame a 13 minute youtube video when it was over didn't this was not a spontaneous mob. that was the official story that came from the white house and the state department. >>neil: what do you think might have been the reason for not calling it a terro
with you, rick. john taft, let me ask you about your clients. you've got to put money to work in this environment. how do you do it when we see the fundamentals are not keeping up with some of this market performance? >> it's a real challenge. the private client was tremendously traumatized by the financial crisis and spooked by technology glitches and continuing scandals in the marketplace. they still don't trust that if they put their money in stocks, bonds, mutual funds, it's going to grow in value over time. we've been encouraging them in as many ways as we can to move out of cash, move out of bonds, which they perceive as safe but have their own risks, into at least a benchmark waiting in equities. the problem is all through this year you've had overhanging uncertainty in the marketplace. first, u.s. economic growth, china, european sovereign debt crisis. those have been replaced right now by, as you've mentioned, fiscal cliff and debt ceiling negotiations. the investor is confused about where to go, but those investors who stayed in cash missed this rally that we've had
's an exclusive interview later this hour. also, don't miss my exclusive with john thain in the next hour. let's look at where we stand as we enter the final stretch. as i mentioned, the market had been up about 100 points earlier. we're very shy of the highs of the day. financials doing well. bank of america one of those dow components. jpmorgan as well. check the s&p 500. here's a look. again, that is the highest of the day. just shy of it, actually. up 14.5 points. better than 1%. we mentioned that gdp data. let's not forget we also had a dismal report on durable goods orders, once again showing weakness in this economy. investors not worried about these numbers today. >> we got decent news out of europe and china this morning. either way, we're asking if investors should think twice before buying into this kind of a rally based on what the u.s. economy is telling us right now. let's talk about it in today's "closing bell" exchange. we have larry blazer from mayflower advisers and our own rick santelli and mandy drury. larry glazer, you happen to believe that economically there's an iceberg
national correspondent john roberts is tonight. >> ahead of the debate. romney is shifting the focus under a withering critique from fellow republicans he is making the campaign less referendum on the president, more a choice between who has the best policies, to lead the nation in the future. >> i represent a different course. i make sure young people have great jobs tomorrow and bright and prosperous future. that is the difference between us. >> wednesday's debate will focus on domestic policy. romney continues to hamer the president for what he calls a failed foreign policy? an op-ed in today's op-ed journal, romney declared the president is weakening the america's position in the world writing, "by failing to maintain the element of our influence and by stepping away from the allies, president obama has heightened the prospect of conflict and instability. he does not understand in american policy that lax resolve can provoke aggressio aggression. and carriage disorder." after a weekend of debate prep in boston, romney left for denver an wednesday's big event. while the campaign played
problem when i came in as governor of the state of wisconsin, john. we were in debt and i came in and with democrats in control of both houses of the legislature, cut taxes 91 times. we reformed spending in the legislature and the state. we were able to create 742,000 jobs. the biggest increase in jobs ever in the history of our state. we turned the state around. i can to the same thing at the federal level. what do we have to do? we have to put in a balanced budget amendment around then we've got to request that every federal agency comes in with a 5% reduction from what they got the previous year and give the secretaries the opportunity to be able to get rid of programs that don't work. nobody in washington ever gets rid of anything. but if you would give the secretaries who run the departments the opportunity to cut back 5% and get rid of programs, you will see the federal government, just like the state did, run more efficiently and better. >> representative baldwin? >> thank you. let me talk about what i would cut in order to grapple with our deficit and our debt. i'd end
bay, lisa patro, wqow tv o'claire and john quarter, news director waftvreinlander. we'll begin with one-minute opening statements. senator baldwin, your opening statement? >> thank for you this opportunity. over this last year i've traveled this great state meeting with people who are working hard, playing by the rules and trying to get ahead. unfortunately, for so many, it's been harder and harder just to get by. and what's changed hasn't been our work ethic, it's been the rules. you know, today in washington, big powerful entrusts the ones with a whole lot of money and best lobbyists get to write their own rules and there's too many politicians who are eager to help them. people feel that washington isn't listening to the struggles of middle class families, and that's why wisconsin needs a senator who will. i've spent my time in washington being a voice for the struggles of middle class families and standing up to powerful interests like wall street, big oil, and the big health insurance companies. my opponent spent his time in washington helping these same powerful interests
. it's spilling over in their districts. we heard senator john kerry speak yesterday. a letter signed, eric. should there be hearings? we have a chorus, bipartisan chorus demanding answers. >> eric: here is how it goes. the timeline. september 11 the attacks happened. september 12 our own u.s. officials know it's terror. they label it terror to release assets to combat terror. on september 13, sorry, on the 12th also, secretary of state hillary clinton comes out and calls it the movie. blame the movie. 13, jay carney did. 14, susan rice does, blames the movie. september 25, barack obama at the podium blames the movie. september 27 our fox reports they knew two weeks ago. what happens today, 28th dn saying well information is evolving and the democrats are you no saying well, i guess we didn't know what the truth was now. we are getting it. here comes the spin. >> kimberly: investigate it after the election. november 7, sounds good. >> andrea: are you going to speak out with the democrats to demand answers or sit here and give us excuses? >> bob: i'm not giving excuses. >> greg: presid
. >> i'm joining now by chris kafinas and john braybender. gentlemen, good to see you again. >> good morning. >> okay, john. we keep saying this but i'm going to say it again. no republican has won the presidency without ohio. so what's mitt romney do now? >> well, thing that's right. i think he has to win not only ohio. i think e has to win probably virginia and florida as well. and i tlink's a couple of keys right now to mitt romney. you know, we saw in the primary. they said after the primary you can hit reset like an etch a sketch and change where you're going. think they're a little bit at that point where they've got to get a little sharper message. i think number one, they've got to get to know mitt romney more personally, not just as a ceo, but what kind of person he's like. numb beer two, they even got to put ideas out there that they're running on to get people excited about where they're going in the country, not just be a professional critic of the president. >> one of the questions is whether or not he's playing it too safe. he's sitting back, letting the events lay out
, president bush was leading democratic challenger john kerry by 11 percentage points just fryer to the first presidential debate. right after the debate, which just about everybody thought that kerry had won, president bush was leading by only two points. and you know, it really didn't change a whole lot until the end of the campaign. president bush won by three points. jenna: very interesting. we see senator kerry on the screen. a lot of things we talk about, larry, is turnout when it comes to this election and how important turnout really is going to be. do debates affect turnout? >> absolutely because the turnout battle is really a battle of enthusiasm in the two party bases and, you know the romney people have been pretty frank. paul ryan was very frank over the weekend in saying the ticket has had a tough couple weeks. when you have a tough couple weeks you're enthusiasm level can decline. a good performance in a presidential debate can gin party enthusiasm. that may happen on wednesday for either side. we'll have to see what transpires in the debate. jenna: we always have to wait to ac
to reform the internal revenue service. i've worked with george bush and john mccain to normalize relations with vietnam. it was a wonderful bipartisan accomplishment that i am proud of. it is not just identifying republicans. the rules have to change, and i promise you, i believe i can persuade americans to amend the constitution, to allow the congress to ban both outside money and limit the amount of money in campaigns because it is corrupting our political decision-making. we need to change the rules of the filibuster and reduce the number of committees, to reform the congressional pension. there are many changes that need to occur, not just identifying somebody that i can work with, but who am i going to fight. i will be fighting with mitch mcconnell and harry reid on a regular basis. >> thank you. you have 30 seconds for a bottle. -- rebuttal. >> throughout my adult life i have been fortunate to serve on a number of boards, commissions. i was a school board member over 20 years. you learn to work with people. on a school board you work with educators and people with the community. i ha
is the mock mitt romney, if you will, john kerry, senator john kerry of massachusetts, he also battle tested. he had his own experience in these debates in 2004. people forget he had a series of epic debates debating a republican governor of massachusetts who challenged him for his senate seat back in 1996. that was bill welles. so it's going to be intense, and as you mentioned, he leaves tomorrow, has one event on the ground when he leaves for nevada. then he goes to ground, training at altitude, because the debate is in the mile-high city of denver. but we don't expect to see much of him. he's going to be doing a lot of practicing for that debate wednesday night. >> this is president obama's first debate since 2008. governor romney had what seemed like 163 primary debates earlier this year. how confident are the president's advisers that he's not a tad rusty? >> reporter: you know, i think that that's something, a story line that they would like to promote. what we've seen, it's almost comica comical, to the extent we've seen both camps downplayings the expectations. so much of life is exp
on one in the 2008 democratic primary, then three debates against john mccain. it's a different dynamic than to be the frontrunner where four or five people are aiming at you throughout a debate. >> here we are on the eve practically of the first debate and it's supposed to be an economic, domestic policy. >> right. >> and now foreign policy has reared its head. we have first of all mitt romney and "the wall street journal" an op-ed, saying that these developments are not as president obama says, mere bumps in the road. they are major issues that put our security at risk, yet amid this upheaval our country seems to be at the mercy of events rather than shaping them, not moving them in a direction that protects our people or allies. and paul ryan just now on the laura engram radio show, saying this about afghanistan. >> that echos also what john mccain said on "morning joe" today. are they trying to change the skubts to get off -- subject to get off 47% and other missteps and perceived problems in their camp or see a real vulnerability here after benghazi in the way that the white house
think that's right. i can't imagine that espn is going to show any of this. i'm waiting for john gruden to use the telestrator on this one. don't go there, folks. >>> rough quarter for the social media stocks except for linked in. it is up 55% in three months. facebook, however, down 43%. pandora 14%. groupon off 92%. facebook is rallying today, though, avilan muching its e commerce gifts feature as we head into q 4. we want to hit another channel check. cnbc's running theme all day long. julia borsten on the social media. >> here's what to watch for in the social sector in the quarter ahead. it's all about growth. can social companies like facebook, zenga and groupon return to accelerating growth. will advertisers ship more dollars than just social? on october 23rd facebook reports its quarterly results. we'll be looking for updates on how the social network plans to make money, particularly from its fast-growing mobile user base. zynga mobile users are waiting to see if it can gain in declines. we'll see if groupon can turn its new ventures like mobile payments into new profits. for s

sector, still at the center of the campaign in 2008, at the first debate between john mccain and barack obama, which was this date four years ago, the focus was the war. in fact, both wars. >> do you, senator mccain, much has been said about the lessons of vietnam. what do you see as the lessons of iraq? >> i think the lessons of iraq are very clear that you cannot have a failed strategy. thanks to this great general david pa tray yous, they are succeeding and winning in iraq. >> whether we should have gone into the war in the first place. six years ago i stood up and opposed this war. we hadn't finished the job in afghanistan. we hadn't caught bin laden. we hadn't put al qaeda to rest. and as a consequence, i thought that it was going to be a distraction. now, senator mccain and president bush had a very different judgment. >> so that was this date, 40 days out from the election in '08 and 40 days out from the election in '04. in '04 the campaign was consumed with the debate over at least one of our wars. 40 days out from the election in '08, in the midst of the financial meltdown the
's show you what happened out here today in this game. we pick it up, john lannan on the hill for the nats tonight top of the 2nd no score. two on, one out. one is driven to the gap in a deep left center. bryce harper gives chase but cannot make the catch, crashes into the wall. one run scores, ball rolls along the track into the left field. second run scores. the phillies take a 2-0 lead. bottom of the 6th, still 2-0, michael morse with a runner on, two outs, full count. kyle kendricks strikes him out. the end of the inning kendrick goes. in laroche is up and goes down, so opportunities missed in this one. they fall 2-0 the final, but it's not going wipe any smiles off the faces here. very no idea where my camera guy is. i'm sure he's right in the middle of the celebration, but it's absolute pandemonium out here on the field. obviously everybody is smiling. gio gonzalez right here as you can see. >> we're looking at pictures right now. we were just seeing pictures when they were inside when the champagne started coming down. you said it was kind of cool because the players came back out o

communications director for the dnc, also an msnbc political analyst and political analyst john ferry. thanks for sticking around with me. we broke in with the news with ahmadinej ahmadinejad's speech. >> up by 2 points since mid-july, obama's ratings for his campaign. is this. going week really do or die for mitt romney on the campaign trail this week and then leading into october 3rd, that first debate? >> well, i think he's behind in ohio, for example. and i think his campaign is starting to gear up post democratic convention. for example, they've just started getting ads in youngstown, ohio. they're going to have to pick up the pace. the debating are going to be critical. think he had a very good "60 minutes" interview. he was pretty funny. having bill clinton say something nice about you might give him a bounce, which i think he desperately needs. >> karen, we see in each of these new polls, the women are the driving force, but the romney campaigns say they see a much tighter race than these polls seem to indicate, basically downplaying what's out there right now. could they be right? co

that there is a war going on, not just in the democratic party, but the republican perhaps much more intense. john boehner is trying to work a deal with the president to do tax reform and entitlement reform and his deputy, the majority leader, calls people like paul ryan, who is now running for vice president. .. >> if you keep doing this, you are going to risk your speakership. the president said when i talked to him, interestingly enough, he said in fixing -- he realizes the magnitude of all of this, as does speaker boehner, key democrats, key republicans realize what it is. and the president literally said to me, i would willingly lose an election if i could solve these problems. it is that serious. tim geithner, the treasury secretary, in the book is quoted thousands of words telling the president, you have got to do something about this problem. we have to fix it. you literally, it's not that we're going to close down the government, we will close down the american economy and, in turn, the global economy. if they do not solve the issue of this runaway spending, get some way to stop borrowing

. we'll get reaction from former u.n. ambassador to the u.n. john bolton. we'll have his take on what he expects the president to say. bill: there is criticism from the white house after president obama referred to the recent turmoil overseas as bumps in the road. we'll talk to house majority leader eric cantor. his reaction on that. we'll be live in moment. >> vice-presidential nominee paul ryan slamming president obama's foreign policy say it made the middle east look like another time of turmoil from the past. >> turn on the tv and it reminds you of 1979 tehran but they're burning our flags in capitals all around the world. they're storming our embassies. woman 1: this isn't just another election. we're voting for... the future of our medicare and social security. man 1: i want facts. straight talk. tell me your plan... and what it means for me. woman 2: i'm tired of the negative ads and political spin. that won't help me decide. man 2: i earned my medicare and social security. and i deserve some answers. anncr: where do the candidates stand on issues that... affe seniors today a

since he and john muhammad went on a three week killing spree that terrorized the d.c. region. tomorrow marks 10 years since that shooting rampage began. malvo spoke to the washington post in an exclusive interview. will thomas is here with more. >> lee boyd malvo was a teenager when he helped kill 10 people and shoot several others. now he's in his late 20s spending 23 hours a day in a small cell thinking about what he did. he told the washington post that fellow sniper john allen it and trained him so that he would be doing anything when asked to do it. that included murder after murder. malvo says he's sorry but said there's no way to properly convey an apology to the victims' families. >> what am i going to tell them? i'm sorry i murdered your only child. i'm sorry i killed your husband. i'm sorry i murdered your wife. what do i tell the child who was waiting for his father to come home, his dad never showed up? >> malvo also said he hopes the families of the victims can forget about him and move on. he said they shouldn't allow him to victimize them for the rest of their lives. ton
